Alcohol and health aren’t usually two words that sit well together. However, I’m all about balance and don’t think that we should miss out too much in order to be healthy! So, I took to the kitchen and designed these healthy cocktails (or as healthy as cocktails get) that are low in calories and are even packed with one of your five a day!
For the full recipe, step by step instructions (it’s really not that difficult) and my kitchen mishaps click right here.They’re delicious, refreshing and perfect for BBQ season! I hear this weekend is going to be a scorcher so why not give them a try! x
Who would have thought it- 1 of your 5 a day, in a cocktail?! Well, what you’re hearing is correct with these fruity delights, created for all of you health-concious party-goers/hosts!
Concocted by myself in perfect timing for this year’s BBQ season (or for your girls night in) these cocktails are not only healthy but delicious too. If I do say so myself… Made with gin, tonic, fresh fruit and ice, they don’t break the bank and are nice and easy to whip together. Although saying that, I did have a few kitchen disasters, which you can view right here.
They’re packed with fruit, are designed to minimise your next-day hangover and are low in calories. See the full recipe on my YouTube channel and add some zest to your week! xx
P.S. See a few of my mishaps below or head over to YouTube to enjoy them all!
Our favourite guest writer is back once again (yippeee) and as a bit of a nutrition expert, I always look forward to hearing Lois’s top food and drink finds. This time she’s blogging all about her new found love for a super healthy drink… Here’s why Lois thinks that Aloe Vera water is one to try! x
I recently discovered Aloe Vera water and was pleasantly surprised at the refreshing and sweet taste of this yummy beverage!
After some research, I loved the sound of all of its health and beauty benefits. Aloe Vera is packed full of amino acids, vitamins including A, C and E and minerals such as Calcium, Iron and Zinc, making it a fabulous drink for detoxing and for boosting your immune system. It helps with lowering blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels and if that isn’t enough, it also helps to increase the healthiness of your hair and promotes hair growth.
Aloe Vera, in its pure leaf form, can sooth skin issues such as acne or burns and is great for skin hydration and building skin’s natural defences- meaning that I’m on a crazy hunt for Aloe Vera product to keep my skin glowing all summer!
Ensure that you’re feeling fresh and healthy after all of this weekend’s Bank Holiday madness by popping down to your local supermarket and trying my new favourite source of hydration!
With Love, Lois x
P.S. It’s available at Tesco for only £1.05 for a 500ml bottle!
